Medical & Dental Devices

— Latest update: March 2022 —

Japan is one of the largest producers and import markets of medical devices in the world and the majority of the device manufacturers in Japan are small and medium-sized enterprises. The rapidly aging Japanese population, increasing number of patients with chronic and life-style diseases, universal health insurance coverage and regulatory measures will continue to drive demand in the medical device market.
